Established in 1990, Hair Restoration of California—which has been featured on Los Angeles Fox News and KCAL Channel 9—offers a variety of treatments that address hair loss in men, women, and children. In addition to low-level laser hair-therapy treatments and surgical hair transplants performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, they give their clients nonsurgical hair replacement options such as Ultratress hair-progression hair extensions. They treat patients who suffer from male- and female-pattern baldness, as well as those who have medical hair loss caused by chemotherapy or alopecia. Inside their facility, an experienced staff of trichologists and beauticians work inside private styling rooms while clients read, watch television, or stare at the ceiling trying to name all the constellations in alphabetical order.
Offering treatments that span 5,000 years of health care, the multitalented team at Dr. Midas Medical Group can alleviate ailments with everything from acupuncture, which originated in China five millennia ago, to modern laser technology. Their range of services also treats a wide variety of issues. The board-certified physicians and nurses can just as readily smooth wrinkles with Botox and other dermal fillers, as wield physique-contouring cold lasers, which liquefy fat in hard-to-tone areas. Meanwhile, acupuncturists insert their hair-thin needles into bodies at key points, addressing maladies such as infertility, unwanted weight, and blocked energy pathways. To complement the clinic’s noninvasive services, the staff also performs plastic-surgery treatments, which range from liposuction to face-lifts to setting broken Barbie arms.
At New Body Image, wellness professionals help clients transform their bodies through non-surgical procedures. Professionals channel their experience and knowledge to design custom weight-loss programs that work to trim anatomical inches. The plans often combine nutritional advice with more advanced treatments, such as noninvasive laser lipolysis, which he highlighted on Fox's San Diego Living. The New Body Image team of technicians also specialize in aesthetic treatments including radio-frequency sessions that target wrinkles and vibration therapy that tones muscles while shaking loose hidden pennies.

Fans of HGTV's Living With Ed might remember Renee as the spa-owner friend of Ed Begley Jr. and his wife Rachelle. But the TV show isn’t the 20-year skincare veteran's first brush with fame. Before opening a second location in LA, she had been helping entertainers and other high-profile faces age gracefully for years and her treatments have been featured on numerous TV shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Good Day LA. Instead of subjecting patients to knives, stitches, and weeks spent hiding indoors, her nonsurgical face-lift relies on a computerized device that uses nano signals to lift sagging muscles and build new tissues. Using the FDA-approved Dermosonic method, Renee is also able to channel ultrasonic vibrations to help break up cellulite deposits, unveiling slimmer, shapelier contours ready to be shown off in a swimsuit or a particularly revealing hot-dog costume, and LED light therapy targets age spots on the hands to ensure appendages match their newly youthful bodies.
